• Come live with me Susan! Homemade Vanilla ice-cream and any type of cobbler is one of my favorite treats.

    Oh, that sounds sooo good. Now I’m craving vanilla ice cream, with a nice creme de menthe liqueur maybe? You make everything sound so yummy. I’ve always thought about investing in an ice cream maker, than I can make my own any time I want. I’ll bet they might even be on sale right now!

  • This sounds amazing! Too bad I was too lazy due to the heat to attempt this recipe today…we went to Yogurtland 😉 Next time, though!

  • Susan, this ice-cream looks fantastic – so creamy. Just one problem, I don’t have an ice-cream maker so how about an easy recipe for frozen yogurt or ice-cream that doesn’t require an ice-cream maker?

    What a fun post! My grandad used to make us vanilla ice cream all the time. Hm, now I’m wondering why he was in charge instead of grandma! We ate it all on the spot, so no storage necessary. I’m glad you explained the Karo and alcohol. I was confused…know that was never a part of the childhood experience. Ha ha. Shared on Facebook!

  • There is never a time when I come to your blog that I’m not blown away from your recipes Susan. I don’t eat dairy, but I’m emailing this one to my sister-in-law as well as sharing it for those who love ice cream. What better way than to make it yourself!

    Sounds and looks delicious, Susan. Clever idea to add alcohol and the syrup. Had no idea it makes ice cream stay creamy in the freezer.

  • This looks so good. Los Angeles definitely has summers that never end. It was a high o 93 today. Yuck.I can’t believe it was just 102 where you are.

    I personally like all the add-ins. My perfect ice cream would be creamy with chunks of sweet and salty. Thanks for the tip with the alchohol. I don’t own an ice cream maker, but I’ve seen so many great blogs with amazing ice cream recipes that I might just have to get one for next summer.

  • My husband loves icecream so I’m going to try the no-maker one. I’ll let you know how it turns out. Thanks Susan, your recipes always have a touch of fun.

  • There is no better way to judge how good ice cream is than to try to vanilla. For homemade ice cream it is my favorite, even without any add-ons. Like everyone else you caught me by surprise with the alcohol.

    Wonderful! I love vanilla ice cream!

  • Looks wonderful but, alas, I no longer have a Cuisinart. That was a casualty of my latest move. I figured it was time for it to to when I had to start dusting it!
